White Hart Lane station in Tottenham was originally a station on the Stoke Newington & Edmonton Railway: it opened on 22 July 1872. It is currently operated by London Overground and is in Travelcard Zone 3, on the Seven Sisters branch of the Lea Valley Lines.

Match day special train services[edit]

The station is heavily used on football match days for local team Tottenham Hotspur, and there is a match day special timetable for this station with trains arriving and departing every few minutes at the station. On match days, there is an increase in the number of trains to and from Cheshunt and Enfield Town, as well as trains to/from Enfield Town and Cheshunt starting and terminating at here, also trains operating to/from Edmonton Green which start or terminate here or at Liverpool Street and some services non-stop to/from Liverpool Street. There is also frequent services between Liverpool Street - Enfield Town/Cheshunt/Edmonton Green via the Gospel Oak to Barking Line and Stratford to provide direct services stopping at Stratford (normally this service only runs three times a week only).

The railway station is the nearest to the stadium as it is about three minutes walk away from Tottenham Hotspur's ground, White Hart Lane. In March 2014 part of the station was damaged by a small fire which took place at the station either on the 16/17 March.

The station is also near to Bruce Castle Park, at which the annual Tottenham Carnival is held, usually in mid-June.

On 31 May 2015 the station and all services that call here transferred from Abellio Greater Anglia to become part of the London Overground network.[2][3]


The typical off-peak service is:

4tph (trains per hour) to London Liverpool Street via Hackney Downs calling at all stations

2tph to Cheshunt calling at Silver Street, Edmonton Green, Southbury, Turkey Street and Theobalds Grove

2tph to Enfield Town calling at Silver Street, Edmonton Green and Bush Hill Park

This service increases in peak hours, when there are 4tph to Enfield Town.

A number of peak services to/from Enfield Town, Edmonton Green and Cheshunt start or terminate here and a few services are non-stop to/from London.


London Buses routes 149, 259, 279, 349 and W3 and night route N279 serve the station.
